Medicare plays a key role in providing health insurance to 60M older people. Audiologists are subject to the rules and regulations that govern payment for services to beneficiaries. Recent initiatives have necessitated an in-depth exploration of the economic relationship between audiology and Medicare. This presentation will cover this relationship, including payment trends, future payment possibilities, Medicare Advantage programs, direct access, and best practices. One thing for sure, audiology has to get its shit together to make this work.
